Scottish Orkney Chair

Late nineteenth century Scottish Orkney chair from the Orkney Islands. Shorter legs allowed the user to sit much lower to the ground to avoid the sooty air from the peat fires which were common in Orkney crofts. The high, straw back was designed to help protect from drafts and also for added comfort. Oak and woven straw.
